Developed over 2 years of rigorous research and development, the NGT Process is our proprietary high-brix, hot-water extraction system. It captures all of the brightness and fine aromatics of freshly brewed coffee in a shelf-stable liquid extract, ready for use in multiple applications.

Our brewing method is a tested recipe of time, temperature, water, dose and pressure. The NGT process yields a high-brix extract providing us flexibility in producing a variety of products with varying strengths and flavor profiles.

Why hot brew? Coffee is comprised of three main flavour compounds: acids, sugars and bitters. These compounds dissolve at different rates based on the temperature of the water used to brew. Our hot brewing method extracts these compounds at the optimum rate and preserves a higher amount of the natural sweetness and bright floral flavours, keeping the aromatics intact in the cup.

The production timeline from bean to beverage is 6-12 weeks.
